When I converted to an external hard drive, I had to do the same thing. Double-click on each song and then pick the correct file path.
I have to think that somehow there is a way to tell iTunes where to search for the songs on a different drive than when they were first downloaded. This is what we need.
Don't pick a tall building - I have hope that someone will resolve our issue.
Thank you for the reply. You may be onto something here. The only think I have changed is the port I have plugged my external hard drive into. However, my external is still the F: drive, meaning the path to my song files should not have changed.
Just to try everying, I have tried plugging my external drive into every USB port. Unfortunately, I still receive the message that the song files cannot be located.
Any additional advice which may help? Is there a way to tell iTunes where to look for song files?
Are you sure that the drive letter of the external
hard drive did not change? This can happen if more
than one device is connected -- e.g. a USB flash
drive in addition to the external HD -- or an iPod.
You may have to change the drive letter of the
external HD back to what it was.
i had the same problem earlier today... i thought the external harddrive letter had changed, but when i checked, it was still the same...
what i did was deleted all the files from itunes and re-imported them... it's easy if u have all ur songs saved in a specific location...
it's under file>add folder to... then u just choose the folder, if there are many subfolders in the main folder, it will add the songs from there too
i was kinda worried that i may have to fix up the songs and how they look, but itunes remembered all my subtle changes... so it was a quick process
the only tedious thing was that i had to fix up all the playlists that i had created manually... other than that, everything is operational once again for me...
hope this helps u guys somewhat
